Mmmm Strawberries are Coming!!!
Do you love garden season?? I do! And I like it even more when "I" don't have to do the gardening!! Ha!! My hubby (he's the reason "I" don't HAVE to garden.) is actually growing strawberries this year and I'm so excited to see how well they take! But... why wait to see and hope for those luscious fruits when we can stamp, color and "play" with them!! Theresa Momber's last set, "Sweet Strawberries" is a fabulous substitute... for now. Ha! If you need a reason to do a strawberry card... why not hop on over to the Outlawz Challenge site to join in on the Greetings Challenge which is ALL about strawberries!!! YES!!!!
My card base is Pure Luxury Ocean Mist layered with some Red Hot and some of the Gina K Patterened Paper Pack, "Berries & Vines". I added another piece of the Ocean Mist and used my Scor-Buddy to add a little dimension to it along the top and bottom. I stamped my image on White card stock and colored it with my Copic markers. Once I cut it out, I added some Crystal Lacquer all over the glass area to, obviously, resemble real glass. :-) I added a few paper flowers and colored my self-adhesive pearls to the flower centers.
I hope you play along with the Outlawz Greetings Challenge. It's always a fun and easy challenge and if I might remind you of one thing... the Greetings Challenge must have a "greeting/sentiment" on the card. I seem to always miss that for some reason and I'M one of the designers! LOL I'll create a card and sometimes even post it before it hits me... "argghh I forgot to put a sentiment on it!" LOL Ya... even the designers forget now and then.
I hope you have a great week. I am thinking after Monday's piano recital for my son, my week should be a little calmer and not so hectic. The end of school year is coming and that seems to always spell "unhectic" to me!
Thanks for stopping by and have a good day! *HUGS*
